We also have to make rules so we can follow the dictum - "rules are meant to be broken!". I think no matter the outcome in class - it is always great to create rules together like this and to give students the sense they are organizing their own learning environment.

The one thing I always reinforce is to phrase the rules in a postive sense. Example - Don't use your cellphone in class BECOMES Keep your cellphone turned off etc.....

Thanks Mike,
